Thermosafe - ATEX certified induction heater for 205 litre (45 ImpGal / 55 USGal) or smaller steel drums / barrels.
[E x II 2 GD E ex e II T3(170°C)] Highly efficient energy transfer by alternating magnetic field - there is no heat transfer by the conventional and inefficient means of radiation or convection. Physical contact is not required, and as there are no hot elements, the heater remains substantially cooler than the drum being heated. SAFETY: The complete absence of hot elements and the encapsulation of all electrical components enables unattended use, overnight if required. Thermosafe can even be used in hazardous areas Zones 1 and 2, as the heater is unique in possessing full BASEEFA/ATEX certification. Uniform heating without hot spots reduces the risk of product degradation. Accidental spillage does not present a fire hazard and personnel can work comfortably in close proximity. Together, these features allow material to be heated at point of use, thus eliminating the transport of hot drums. EFFICIENCY: The low system temperature and lack of unwanted heat transfer contribute to the high efficiency of the induction heater. Power usage is extremely low at only 2.25kW. The heaters have won several awards for efficiency and productivity. Independent figures indicate energy savings of over 50% when compared with conventional radiant drum heaters, and more than 90% in comparison with drum ovens. SPEED: By using the entire drum wall to input energy, the fastest practical heating rate can be achieved without product degradation. Heating times will depend on the contents of the drum, but to give a rough idea, the rate of temperature rise of a typical viscous organic liquid will be about 15 °C per hour. The speed is further improved by the instant initial response of induction heating. Typically, Thermosafe has proved to be 2 to 4 times faster than ovens. CLEANLINESS: With ingress protection to IP66, smooth surfaces and no moving parts, the induction heaters are ideal for use in clean environments. They can even be hosed down during use.
